Day Boys are pretty into the closing of one of their playgrounds, PIG is on with Hard To Handle and Lovelight. Cryptial Envelopment was not played often after this grate show. This was in circulation big time during the casette years as a FM, wore this baby out, SP

For some reason the 'recently reviewed' stream of this won't work for me, but there are two others which seem fine. Try this http://www.archive.org/details/gd1971-07-02.sbd.clevenger.lai.fix-128.6193.sbefail.shnf

Great pick for today, Pig! Can't think of one from 7/2 to beat it. Blast this baby loud!

The Dead come back to home base and close the Fillmore West with flash and fireworks.True, like many 71 shows, there are some shaky points, esp. with the newer songs. But for sheer energy and inspired playing,this show is among the best for 71. The HT Handle may be only rivaled by the 4/29 version. And Loser has now found its groove, a real highlight. The Other One is fast and furious, and at times sounds like the 1969 Dead again. Maybe the Fillmore opened a time portal to 69 during the show? Well, this version IS dedicated to Owsley,ha ha. If you like "Skullfuck" GD 1971, then you'll love this show, song lists are very similar. A historic show.

A fantastic and historic performance, easily among the very best of 1971, and one of the all-time greats. Several song renditions are condenders for best ever performances and the Other One suite is amazing!

This is an epic show with a unique vibe. At times, the musicians are out of tune, and levels overheat, but this one is great in so many ways. One of my favorites since before I had to shave!

I totally agree with Cliff on this show - the many great versions of songs and that 'you are there' sound just sucks you into the vibe of the night. Always been in my top 10. The Other One suite - dedicated to Owsley in prison - is exceptional. The way they wind it down and close it is truly majestic - you get the feeling that the band wanted this one to be just perfect.

From McNally: "On July 2, the Dead played their last show at the Fillmore West, and although they played so poorly they asked not to be in Graham’s film Last Days of the Fillmore (their resistance drove Graham crazy, until eventually they relented and allowed him to have one song), they did realize one ambition, which was to get Bill Graham high on LSD. It was fun for him, too. When he realized the source of his giddiness, he looked at the band and cracked up. Someone handed him a stick, Bill hit the gong, and in “one of the dozen great nights of my life,” he conducted the Dead “and probably lovingly made an ass of myself.”

I had this on a 2 LP bootleg vinyl set that came out soon after. One of my favorite recordings of one of my favorite gigs. I wore that sucker out - played it hundreds of times. I felt transported to a great gig and farewell party each time I listened ... and felt a little sad each time I thought about this being the last gig at a great venue ... and an end of an era.

I saw the band for my last time 24 years later to the day - 7-2-95 Deer Creek . . . I occasionally listen to my discs of that show, and am always saddened by the fact it too was the last gig at a great venue . . . and in so many ways, and end of an era.
